BIM Documentation – tips and tricks for displaying building information with Vectorworks.
A Vectorworks Users Group
Tuesday, July 9, 2013
Free and open to all, no rsvp necessary.
The focus of this meeting will be on the display of information contained in the data attached to objects in a BIM model — in plug-in objects such as space objects, walls, doors, windows, and in symbols from the resources that ship with Vectorworks, as well as data defined by the users of the software. We will explore and discuss the tools available for displaying information attached to drawing symbols in a BIM file on plans and in schedules, and techniques to present it.
As well, we will take time to field questions and to discuss issues that may be bothersome, or of interest to the group.
